paris day one

Here we are on on a cruise down the Seine. Beautiful!

It is so easy with a fast link to St Pancreas from here, then the Eurostar. We stayed in a funky hotel just a step from the Metro at Porte de Orleans.

The first day we headed toward the Latin Quarter, I had a great steak and frites at a lovely Brasserie and we cruised. (The river... ) We spent an hour on the boat - seeing the sites, sauntered past the stalls before loitering around the Louvre and its pools of water. We didn't visit the exhibitions as it was getting near closing time.
Up to Montmatre and a visit to Sacre Couer at dusk with singing on the steps. (We took the funicular up, and the steps down! I remember climbing those steps when I was very pregnant with Freddie. Whew!)

Anyway, we finished the day witha great meal, a bit of a traumatic metro ride with Flis hurting her elbow and me getting a bad head. Collapsed, exhausted!
